Purpose of database port on installation screen?

What is the purpose of the database port on the ZR5 installation screen?

It seems to come up before you pick whether you're using ZCM or config file, which I find odd.

The docs seem to indicate that if you select ZCM config, it'll know about whatever database ZCM is using (ie: external MS SQL or Oracle, etc.)
But by then you've already set a database port?

So what should we use for the Database port? Is that the port that our Oracle database is (for ZCM?)
Or does ZR5 use some other database as well as whatever ZCM is using?

If the latter, WHERE does this database get installed and what is it used for?

(this is obviously different than ZRS)

yes, see above 🙂

on "this" server, and where do you think the reports get stored?

Thanks Shaun. I was hoping that it would use the External Database, rather than me now having to maintain two separate databases, including one we don't "officially" support from an Enterprise standpoint (our official database we are to use is Oracle 11g R2, and in some cases, MS SQL when necessary).

Kjhurni,

check the install log, you'll see that it installs a postgres database
- much like the BOE reporting used MSSQL, this one uses its own:
licensing a product from someone else has the great advantage that you
get a tried and tested product, not a version 1.0, but the disadvantage
is that at least at first, compromises need to be made.
